SCLS Annual Barcode Order Form

Use this form to order item and patron barcode labels for 2019. Libraries order barcode labels in December of each year for delivery and billing in the January of the following year. Barcode labels are shipped to the SCLS office, separated and repacked by SCLS staff and sent to each library through Delivery. After the labels are delivered each library that ordered will receive a bill from SCLS for your share of the order and shipping. If we order over 200,000 Single/Twin labels, our pricing will be $14.33 per thousand, over 350,000 our pricing will be $13.05 per thousand and over 500,000 the price will be 12.13 per thousand. The pricing for Double barcodes is $46.20 per thousand.  Minimum order of single, twin or double labels is 5000 labels.

There are 72 barcodes/labels per sheet printed for singles. There are 72 labels and 36 barcode numbers per sheet for twins.  There are 48 full and 48 half labels/numbers per sheets for doubles (or two-part labels).

In the form below, indicate the number of thousand labels you want to order (3000, 5000, 14,00, etc.), regardless of type. We no longer order labels by sheet quantity, but will separate, repack, deliver and charge by sheet count; it is too time intensive to do otherwise. For example, if you order 4000 labels and the ending number of your order lies in the middle of a sheet of a barcodes, we will send you that entire sheet and bill you appropriately.

In the section below, select your library and enter the name, telephone number, and email address of the contact person.

Next, indicate in the spaces below the style the number of barcodes you are ordering, rounded to the nearest thousand. There are three styles to choose from. The samples below illustrate each style. (The library name will be in larger type, as in the sample at the top of the page.)
  • Single barcodes are the simplest, consisting of one barcode for each label.  Item barcode labels have a library imprint, patron barcode labels do not.
  • Double barcodes consist of one full barcode label and a numbered label.
  • Twin barcodes are sets of two identical barcodes/labels for each number. If you are ordering twin barcode labels, order the number of separate numbers that you need. You will be paying for twice that many labels. For example, if you order 5,000 twin barcodes, you will receive (and pay for) 10,000 separate labels.
